Farmer Brown's Boy Does Some
Think a little kindly thought
And then Just let It grow.
Twill lead you to a kindly deed
The first thing that you know. '
Farmer Brown's Boy had no kindly
thoughts as he trudged home with his
terrible gun over his shoulder, a scowl
on his freckled face and poor old Bow
ser the Hound limping slowly and
painfully at his heels. In the first
place Farmer Brown's Boy felt hurt
in his pride. You know pride is a very
tender thing ad easily hurt. Farmer
Brown's Boy had set traps around the
home of Old Man Coyote, and he had
taken such great pains and had hidden
them so skillfully that he had been
absolutely sure that It would be Im
possible for Old Man Coyote to get out
of his house without stepping in one
of them. He had been very proud of
the way he had set those traps. So
when he found that Old Man Coyote
had come out of his house without
getting caught his pride had been
hurt. He knew by the way one of the
traps had been sprung and dragged out
that it had not been luck that had
saved Old Man Coyote. It had been
smartness. Old Man Coyote had found
that trap and had pulled It out of his
To make matters worse, Bowser the
Hound had had to step right into a
trap and the terrible Jaws had hurt
his leg dreadfully. Of course, it was
an'accident. It showed how well his
traps were set. for Bowser hadn't seen
this one at all. As he thought this
Farmer Brown's Boy's pride began to
feel better. Then came another thought
so suddenly that he stopped short. "I
wonder If that coyote knew where that
trap was and led Bowser Into it pur
posely," he said. I I do believe he
did." His pride now felt worse than
"Never mind. Bowser, old fellow,
we'll, get him yet," he said, stooping to
pat Bowser's head. -
Now, of course, Bowser was obliged
to go very slowly because he could use
only three legs, and then he had to
stop every little while to lick the one
which' had been hurt in the trap. So
Farmer Brown's Boy had plenty of
time for thinking. At first his anger
at Old Man Coyote grew and grew.
Then, little by little, It gave way to a
feeling something very like admira
tion. He had to admit to himself that
Old Man Coyote had been smarter than
he. By and by he admitted It to Bow
"We' thought we were pretty smart,
didn't we, old fellow?" said he. "But
that coyote fooled us both, and I be
lieve he planned to lead you into that
trap. He's pretty smart. Yes, sir,
we've got to take our hats off to him.
I wish I hadn't set those traps again,
because If he was smart enough to
keep out of them once hell be smart
enough to ke"p out of them again.
Does your paw hurt dreadfully. Bow
ser?" Bowser looked up and whined. There
was no doubt that his paw was very,
very sore. Now, Farmer Brown's Boy
loves Bowser, and he couldn't bear to
see him hurt. When they reached
home he very tenderly bathed the hurt
paw and bound it up. And while he
was doing It he was still thinking hard,
perhaps even a little harder than be
fore. He was thinking what It must
be like to one of the little wild people
to be caught in one of those traps
and to have, besides the pain, the ter
rible fright of not being able to get
away and of what would happen.
Somehow he thought of those traps in
